Thankyou for your insight, Tim. I agree with you that using the resources of teacher and sangha would be a good idea if they are available. I know that if those resources were here, I would certainly not ignore them! There are many of us in the West that must go it alone. And yes, we recognize the need for guidance. That is why we found our way to this forum, for guidance. Its very hard to take a trip without a map, you may get lost. That is why we read books and sutras, etc, for our map. And traveling is always more fun with fellow travelers, ie. teacher and sangha but isn't always feasible. Anyway, we appreciate your insight. Glad you found us!
